DEDICATION 2006 




To the brave men and women who ensure our nation' s 
freedom and security. Those who are unselfishly willing to 
make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our way of life, here in 
Ossipee, across our great nation, and wherever Americans may 
find themselves in harms way throughout the world. To you, 
the American soldier, we dedicate this 2006 Annual Town 
Report, and also say 'Thank You!'' 






"EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR 2005" 




Patricia Jones 

With great pride and appreciation, the 2005 Ossipee "Employee of the 
Year" honor is bestowed upon Patricia Jones. 

Rat currently serves the town as secretary to the Zoning Board, Planning 
Board, and Conservation Commission. Pat served for six years as a selectman, and 
has put in countless hours of her own time working on projects for the town. She is 
a member of the Lakes Region Planning Commission, Mt. Washington Valley 
Economic Council, and Ossipee Economic Development Committee and was 
instrumental in Ossipee gaining recognition as a Main Street Community. She 
currently serves as the Main Street Program President. 

Rat's knowledge, willingness to go the extra mile to serve the people of this 
community, and her sense of humor make her an invaluable asset to this community 
and she is a pleasure to work with. 

It is with great pride and pleasure that the Board of Selectmen and Town 
Employees honor Patricia Jones with this award.

"2005 CITIZEN OF THE YEAR" 
TOWN OF OSSIPEE 




PATRICIA JONES 

The Ossipee Board of Selectmen congratulates Patricia Jones, recipient of 
the Town of Ossipee 2006 Citizen of the Year Award. This annual presentation is 
based on volunteer service to the community, and unselfish acts of benevolence 
toward its residents. 

Pat is a retired schoolteacher and former Ossipee Selectman. She currently 
serves the town as secretary to the Planning Board, Zoning Board and Conservation 
Commission. This year she was also awarded the 2005 Employee of the Year 
distinction. 

Pat's life has been dedicated to the service of others and she exemplifies 
the community spirit that makes Ossipee such a wonderful place to live. Most 
recently and, perhaps most notably are Rat's efforts in having Ossipee designated as 
a Main Street Community. 

The Town of Ossipee appreciates all that she has done, and all that she 
continues to do.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT 

To the Members of the Board of Selectmen 
Town of Ossipee 
Ossipee, New Hampshire 
February 2007 

In our ongoing effort to keep you informed of changes in auditing and 
accounting standards which will or may affect you, we wish to take this opportunity 
to let you know about a major change in auditing standards brought about by the 
Statement on Auditing Standards No. 12 (SAS 112) released by the Accounting 
Standards Board. This statement, Communicating Internal Control Related Matters 
Noted in an Audit, is the latest change to come down as a result of the Enron and 
WorldCom scandals. 

SAS 1 12 presents new definitions of internal control deficiencies, and how 
we, as auditors evaluate and report on any deficiencies noted, and also requires us 
now to report whether or not there are any deficiencies in the internal control over 
the preparation of your financial statements. As a direct result of the Enron and 
WorldCom problems occurring due to failures in financial reporting, SAS 112 
places specific emphasis on the internal controls over financial reporting. 

When auditing your financial statements under the new standard, which 
took effect for all financial statements of periods ending after December 15, 2006, 
we are now required to ask whether the entity being audited has the expertise to 
determine whether the financial statements and disclosures are materially correct, 
and if not, then we have a control deficiency to evaluate and report. 

SAS 1 1 2 also makes it very clear that the auditor cannot be considered part 
of your internal controls, and therefore, it is not sufficient to rely on the auditor to 
prepare your financial statements with no adequate review by some member of the 
entity itself. 

We see our current clients as falling into one of a few categories with 
regard to this requirement, as follow: 

• We have a very few clients, who actually do prepare the financial 
statements, (including notes to the financial statements) themselves, or who have 
hired an independent third-party to prepare them, and all we do is audit these 
statements and perhaps, point out a few minor adjustments that need to be made to 
them. For these clients, there would be no control deficiency to evaluate unless we 
found material misstatement during the audit. 

• Next, there is a somewhat larger group of clients, that have a financial 
person on staff who is fully qualified to prepare the financial statements, but 



23 



because of workload, timing or other appropriate reason, we prepare the financial 
statements for them. These people fully understand the statements and disclosure 
requirements, review the financial statements when they are prepared, and are able 
to tell us if there has been any misstatement made. For these clients, there would 
probably be no control deficiency either, but we will be requiring them to review 
the financial statements and all adjusting entries made, and certify to us that they 
understand them and take responsibility for them. We will also have to be sure 
based on their conversations with us and other auditing procedures, that we do not 
disagree that they have the required level of knowledge. 

• There is a fairly large group of towns, school districts, village districts and' 
school administrative units in New Hampshire however, which due to size, 
budgetary constraints or other reason, do not have any individual on staff who is 
qualified to prepare the financial statements following U.S. generally accepted 
accounting principles for governments. This is where the reporting problem is going 
to hit hard. While we can continue to prepare your financial statements as we have 
done in the past, we will be required to report a deficiency in control if you do not 
have a responsible party with the adequate knowledge to take responsibility for 
them. 

The control deficiency is evaluated as either a significant deficiency, in 
which there is more than a remote likelihood of a more than inconsequential 
misstatement occurring in the financial statements; or a material weakness, in 
which there is more than a remote probability of a material misstatement of the 
financial statements occurring. Obviously, if a material misstatement has occurred 
on client prepared financial statements, there is automatically a material weakness. 

We realize that there may be implications with this comment, as towns are 
required to print the letter of findings in the town report. The finding will be 
modified on a case by case basis depending on the actual qualifications of the 
existing personnel, but we expect the finding will read something like this: 

The Town has a material weakness in its internal control system over 
financial statement preparation. The Town's financial statements were prepared by 
the auditor, however, the Town does not have the expertise to evaluate whether the 
financial statements are in compliance with generally accepted accounting 
principles. 

What steps can be taken to prevent a finding like this from being reported? 
For one thing, you may have someone on staff or an elected official who does have 
the expertise, but that individual has not been reviewing the financial statements. 
For example, if a member of the board of selectmen is an accountant and 
understands governmental accounting, he or she could review the auditor-prepared 
statements and accept responsibility for them on behalf of the Town. 



24 



Another possibility may be to hire an outside consultant with 
governmental accounting knowledge to review the auditor-prepared financial 
statements and accept responsibility for your Town. You would have to make sure 
that such a consultant was fully qualified, and probably draw up a signed contract 
outlining exactly what the consultant would do. 

You could also follow the way of a few other governmental entities in New 
Hampshire and hire an outside consultant to prepare the financial statements to be 
audited. Again, you would have to make sure that the consultant was well qualified 
because if we had to make material adjustments to the consultant prepared 
statements, then a material weakness would still be reported. This option would 
probably be more costly, both in time and money, as the preparing consultant would 
have to ask many of the same questions and have access to the same schedules and 
ledgers as the auditors in performing the audit. 

The final option would be to just accept that there will be a deficiency 
reported, and let it go at that. This would certainly be the most cost advantageous to 
your Town, but may not be the most palatable to the readers of your financial 
statements. There are also ramifications if you are having a single audit, as the 
presence of material weaknesses in any audit, precludes you from being considered 
a low-risk auditee for the next two years; and this usually results in more testing 
required during the single audit procedures. 

We hope this letter serves as an introduction to the new reporting 
requirements on deficiencies. If you wish to read more on this statement, you should 
visit the website of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants at 
www.aicpa.org . As always, do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions 
or need further clarification.

Notes fron the Clerk's Office... 

I will not be running for another term as Town Clerk and Tax Collector in 
2007 as I will be looking forward to retirement. Much of this year was spent 
preparing for the transition by defining and documenting my duties as well as 
sorting through 20 years of files. 

Tracy, Trish and I have worked together for fifteen years and I will miss 
them. The Town of Ossipee will be very fortunate to have Kellie Skehan as Town 
Clerk/Tax Collector. They will make a wonderful team and will serve you well. 

I appreciate and wish to thank the wonderful people who have made a 
difficult job a joy. I thank the Board of Selectmen, Martha Eldridge and others for 
their support. I always said if you need to work you may as well love your work, and 
that I did. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Barbara R. Adams 

Town Clerk

TOWN OF OSSIPEE 

TRUSTEES OF TRUST FUNDS 

2006 ANNUAL REPORT 

2006 has been a transitional year for the investments of the Trust Funds of 
our town. With many financial institutions offering a variety of investment 
opportunities, including flexible terms and returns, it was necessary to maintain a 
constant follow-up program. Your Trustees were able to stay on top of the changes 
and the result was an overall increase in the interest income for all accounts. 

This increase was apparent in all invested funds, but no more so than in 
the Lyford Merrow Scholarship Fund. This fund, which is only for Ossipee residents, 
had a very good year on income and so the Scholarship amount for the 2007-2008 
college year will be $30,000. Those parents who have students graduating from 
High School this June and going to college, should have their children pick up an 
application from the High School Guidance Office as soon as possible. 

On the following pages you will see the audited breakdown of the Trust 
accounts. We have listed the basic categories of our accounts and their principal 
and interest sums. The report indicates the beginning balance of the year, the 
income and expenditures and the ending balances as of the 31st of December. 

The investment policies of the Trustees of Trust Funds meet the rigid 
requirements of the Charitable Trust Division of the office of the Attorney General 
of New Hampshire. As such we have investment in: CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT, 
MONEY MARKET ACCOUNTS, SAVINGS ACCOUNTS, CHECKING ACCOUNTS 
and THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PUBLIC DEPOSIT INVESTMENT POOL. We utilize our 
local Banks as often as possible/including Laconia Savings Bank, Northway Bank, 
and Citizens Bank. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George F. Lynch, Chairman 

June Loud, Trustee 

Michelle Capone, Trustee

OSSIPEE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 

2006 Annual Report 

The Ossipee Economic Development Committee is scheduled to meet on 
the fourth Tuesday of every other month. Meetings are called as needed. New 
members are alv^ays welcome. Our Mission Statement: 

Our mission is to foster organized growth utilizing liuman and natural 
resources in a responsible way. The OEDC seeks to educate and involve the 
community in its work. 

The OEDC members are involved in projects in the Mount Washington 
Valley Economic Council. OEDC member Donna Sargent is Ossipee's 
representative on the Council. She is a member of the Revolving Loan Fund 
Committee. We encourage residents of Ossipee who would like to start or expand 
a business to apply for a loan. SCORE volunteers are available to help with business 
plans. The Education Committee is working on providing job retraining in high- 
paying technical jobs. The Technology Village is also home to the Granite State 
College offering courses to help career advancement. Business tax credits are 
available for any business to buy that would benefit from the tax credits. 

Members of the Ossipee Economic Development Committee have 
attended programs presented by leaders in the business, government, education and 
financial sectors of our economy. Several have attended conferences put on by the 
New Hampshire Main Street Program to learn more about how to revitalize 
downtown Center Ossipee. 

Most of the OEDC members were interested in the concept of business 
revitalization with historic preservation while building a feeling of community, so 
we formed the Ossipee Revitalization Group dedicated to attaining Main Street 
membership. Ossipee is now a Main Street Community. The program basically 
consists of volunteers working in structured task-oriented committees to improve the 
vitality of their community. One of the four committees is the Economic 
Restructuring Committee, which is sponsoring the second annual Economic Fair at 
the end of March which the OEDC is pleased to help sponsor. The first Economic 
Fair was a big success. Many of the presenters plan to return, and several new 
features, such as workshop sessions, are being added.

SELECTMEN'S REPORT 
2006 

The Selectmen have had another busy, challenging year. 

Aside from normal road and paving Annie Nichols Road was completely rebuilt 
and prepared for paving in 2007. We ran into a number of unanticipated problems 
which used some money planned for other roads. These included a number of 
springs, much rain, and the need to raise the road in excess of 8 feet in some areas. 
Work was also started on replacement of the Valley Road Bridge and we are happy 
to say that we anticipate the completed costs will come in under budget by a 
considerable amount. 

The OCC building was re-shingled and the back wall of the Water Department 
building was replaced. 

Purchase of the Charlie Smith property and plans are progressing to turn this 
into a park. 

The Town filled the following positions: Brad Harriman was hired to be our new 
Public Works Director, Dayna Rousseau as our Assessing Supervisor, Marge Vacca 
as our Welfare Director, and Wendy Sargent as our new Dog Officer. The Police 
Department also added Matthew Tyler as a new officer. 

The Selectmen would like to thank all of the town employees, elected officials, 
and volunteers for their hard work and dedication. The town could not run without 
them.

OSSIPEE MAIN STREET PROGRAM 
2006 Annual Report 




Through the volunteer efforts of a number of citizens and friends of 
Ossipee, Ossipee became a Main Street community in 2005 and an area of the 
Center Ossipee village was identified as the target area in which the program was 
to begin its work. The program, an all volunteer effort, using a four point approach 
endorsed by the New Hampshire Main Street Center and the National Trust for 
Historic Preservation, is run by a Board of Directors, four volunteer committees and 
a part time paid director. While the program is partially funded with an 
appropriation from the Town voted on at Town Meeting, the majority of the 
operational budget comes from contributions from individual residents and friends 
of Ossipee, local and area businesses, and fundraising efforts. 

The four points underlying the Main Street approach are organization, 
promotion, design and economic restructuring. Organization is to make sure the 
program has the resources it needs to carry out its work of revitalizing downtown. 
This includes funding, administrative matters, and organizing and publicizing the 
various activities undertaken by Ossipee Main Street and its partners. Promotion 
sponsors events and promotes activities to encourage citizens and guests alike to 
visit downtown Center Ossipee. Design is charged with responsibility for the built 
design. This includes things like streetscapes, pedestrian ways, building facades, and 
signage. Economic Restructuring helps to support make the downtown area 
economically viable. 

2006 was a busy year of significant growth made possible through the 
collaborative efforts of Main Street volunteers and their many partners. Here's what 
our year looked like: 

January: Volunteers worked to prepare a warrant article to see if the Town 



48 



would purchase three vacant lots in the "square" for the purpose of creating a park 
in the center of town and an artist's conception of the park was shared. 

February: Main Street introduced its new logo on a sweatshirt that was sold 
as a fundraiser at the antique and vintage snowmobile rally at the Lion's Club. 

March: Voters approved the purchase of the land for the park and the Main 
Street Economic Restructuring Committee held its inaugural economic fair. 

April: Micro-Credit NH holds meetings with local business owners at the 
Ossipee Public Library and begins the process that will launch a Business Group in 
Ossipee. 

May: Volunteers clean-up the "square". A heritage ornament is introduced 
that showcases the grain elevator and the first snowmobile at the OCC Spring Fling 
and another successful fundraising effort starts. 

June: Ossipee Main Street said good bye and good luck to its first director, 
Allison Lodge, as she headed off to Wisconsin. Volunteers began work on their 
second award winning float for the 4th of July parade. 

July: Our parade float, a working replica of the grain elevator in Center 
Ossipee won an award and the second annual duck race sold out adoption 
certificates well before the race. Area businesses once again showed their 
overwhelming support and generosity by providing race prizes. 

August: We hired a new executive director, Sarah Millette, a familiar face 
to Main Street because she had been a Board member and volunteer. We cleaned 
up the vacant lots, took lots of "before" pictures and crowds showed up for our 
Inaugural BBQ in the Park. Two days after the picnic, work began on converting the 
vacant lots to a park and the concrete foundation was removed. A few weeks later, 
the Town Highway crew donated their time after hours and with the consent of the 
Selectmen used the Town's heavy equipment to remove asphalt from the lots and 
began the processing of grading the lot. Main Street "people" supported ValuLand's 
Customer Appreciation Days and sold t-shirts, sweatshirts and heritage ornaments to 
raise funds for the program. 

September: The New Hampshire Main Street Center brought 4 experts to 
town for a 3 1/2 day Resource Team Visit. Target area property owners, residents, 
area businesses, municipal and elected representatives provided invaluable insight 
and ideas to the team of experts who shared their recommendations with the public 
at the conclusion of their on-side visit. The Promotion Committee held an Inaugural 
Sock Hop and Main Street became a member of the Town Highway Safety 
Committee. 

October: Two new businesses were welcomed: CBW Productions 
relocated its voiceover and message duplication service from Massachusetts and 
New England Merchants Corporation relocated its mortgage business from 
Rochester to the Chamberlain Building. We joined the Greater Ossipee Area 
Chamber of Commerce. The Director, board members and volunteers participated 
in the New Hampshire Downtown Institute. The four committees started to work 
with the recommendations of the Resources Team's experts to develop their work 
plans for 2007. Main Street worked with the Town's streetlight conversion 
committee and representatives from Ossipee Corner Fire Precinct to identify 



49 



historically appropriate decorative light fixtures to consider for village areas of the 
proposed street light conversion program. The building on park property received a 
fresh coat of paint with the help of numerous volunteers and local businesses. Main 
Street Board Member Beverly Woods revised the web site making it easier for 
committees to update and maintain it. New features added on the site included: 
property in target area available for sale or rent, an event calendar, and the vision 
and mission statements. A heavy, dreary rain forces OCC to host a Haunted House 
rather than the Haunted Train Ride and Main Street assists by providing ghouls, 
goblins and candy. 

November: Recognizing the Town's youth used the 3 vacant lots purchased 
for a park as a skate park. Main Street and the Recreation Department hosted ah 
informational session for parents and youth about creating a skate park. 35 parents 
and youth attended and formed a group that is working to develop a skate park. 
Dave Dube, founder of the Chefs' Pants Off announced Ossipee Main Street and the 
new park would be a beneficiary of his second annual fundraiser and the Elm 
Research Institute of Keene, NH donated a 6" America Liberty (disease resistant) elm 
tree to the park. 

December: Local businesses volunteered to partner with Main Street and 
sold the heritage ornament highlighting the grain elevator and Ossipee's roots as 
home to the first snowmobile. The Design Committee began a process to apply to 
PLAN NH for a charrette to assist the community with built design issues like 
sidewalks and other pedestrian ways, facade improvements, parking, a landscape 
design for the park that includes handicap access. The Ossipee Garden Club, Carroll 
County Cooperative Extension Service and UNH Forestry Service partnered with 
Main Street to decorate the target area properties for the holidays. The Conservation 
Commission provided a gift of funds to help convert the vacant lots to green space. 
The businesses oh the hill at Kranky Franky's Plaza hosted a holiday open house 
which benefited the park. And the year ended with the Main Street Program 
receiving the final report of recommendations from the Resource Team visit held in 
September. Copies were made available to the public at the Town Hall, library and 
Main Street Office. 

Throughout this past year, the enthusiasm and support for the efforts of the 
Ossipee Main Street grew considerably. Every event or project elicited new 
volunteers who come forward and offered to help with a specific project or 
volunteer a special talent or skill. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank them 
as well as the Town of Ossipee and each of our supporters for all our success. 
Without all of you, our work would not be possible. Should you want to volunteer 
or have a suggestion for the program, please contact us at 539-7200. Or visit our 
website, www.ossipeemainstreet.org to learn more about the program and when 
committees meet. 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Ossipee Main Street Board of Directors, 

Sarah Millette, Executive Director

SUPERVISOR OF THE CHECKLIST REPORT 

We are now in the 21st century with the new State of New Hampshire 
mandated centralized voter registration database up and running. We had our first 
election in November using our required new (used) computer and printer that was 
purchased for the supervisors of the checklist. Working with the new checklist 
program has been both interesting and challenging for the three housewives and 
grandmothers, to say the least. We traveled to attend numerous required training 
classes to learn the ElectioNet System. Being new the computer program is 
constantly being revised and upgraded leaving the possibility of more classes to 
come. You the voter may help by keeping us informed of any changes in your status, 
this way we can keep the Ossipee checklist up to date. Thank you for your 
continued patience and support.

OSSIPEE POLICE DEPARTMENT 
Annual Report 2006 

2006 was a busy but productive year for the Police Department. An 
addition was completed at the station on Dore Street which included a three bay 
garage, with a new evidence and records room overhead. In an era when Towns are 
spending hundreds of thousands, and in many cases millions of dollars on stations, 
the work completed at our station was approximately $70,000.00 and will take care 
of the department's needs for several years to come.* 

We experienced some turnover this past year with James Mullen accepting 
a sergeants position in Madison. We hired Matt Tyler who completed the academy 
in the fall. With a full roster, with the exception of illness or absence, we are for the 
first time covering the Town with 24 hour patrol coverage. I have no doubt that this 
is a significant step towards the protection of our citizens and property. 

This department has worked with all the other Towns in the County to form 
the Carroll County Drug Task Force. This is the First in the State of New Hampshire 
and was set up with the help of the State Attorney General. Our involvement is not 
to work in other Towns, but through this task force, a dealer in another Town who is 
dealing to people from our Town will no longer be safe. Sgt. Eldridge is the Assistant 
Commander for this task force and brings to the table the commitment and 
experience necessary for success. 

We continue to be active in as many community events and programs as 
possible. One in particular is the after school program. We continue to run an 
activity club in the program which has been very successful in breaking down 
barriers and fostering a relationship between officers and the children which will 
pay dividends for years to come. Since the program was established, there has been 
a 62% reduction in the number of juvenile arrests. This can't be all coincidence. 

At Town Meeting, voters will be asked to fund a detective's position for the 
Police Department. I believe that this position coupled with specialized equipment 
and training will allow us to better investigate, solve and prosecute the more serious 
crimes, which occur every year. As of this writing the Board of Selectmen has voted 
2-1 not to recommend the article. It is important for people to understand that all 
three are on record that they believe we need it, two think we can't afford it. The 
Budget Committee has recommended the article unanimously. As I have always 
stated, if you think we either don't need it or can't afford it then vote no. We will 
continue to do the very best job that we can with the resources you provide. As I 
approach the end of my career as Chief of this department, the easiest thing in the 
world for me to do would be to coast, not ask for anything, don't make any waves. 
That is not what you pay me to do. I have and will continue to advise you to the 
very best of my ability what I believe you need for police services. 

We continue to have excellent relationships with the departments around 
us, and the Carroll County Sheriff's Dept. and I thank them for their assistance 
throughout the year. I further thank the Fire Departments, Med Star ambulance 
service and staff at Town Hall for their support. I most especially thank the entire 
staff of this department for their dedication and performance throughout the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Richard H. Morgan, 

Chief of Police

MEDSTAR EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES, INC. 
Activities Report, 2006 

It is difficult to believe that another year has already past. Once again the year 
proved very busy for Medstar crews as they responded to nearly 2000 calls for 
assistance. Their responses included everything from standing by at fire scenes to 
homicide. I commend them for their diligence and dedication. 

As demand for service continues to grow we strive to improve our capabilities. 
Currently, we have one EMT-I enrolled in a paramedic program and three EMTs who 
are preparing to sit for the National Registry EMT Intermediate exams. We have just 
placed a 2006 AEV Custom Ambulance into service. This brings our fleet to five front 
line ambulances and one in reserve. 

I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to the 
people of Ossipee for their tremendous support. A very special THANK YOU goes 
out to the members of The Center Ossipee Fire & Rescue Department, The West 
Ossipee Fire & Rescue Department, The Ossipee Corner Fire & Rescue Department, 
The Ossipee Police Department, and The Ossipee Highway Department. As always, 
their dedication only makes the work we do easier, and the people of Ossipee safer. 

In 2006 we responded to 825 calls in Ossipee. They were as follows: 

Medical Aids 463 

Trauma 39 

Motor Vehicle Accidents 1 08 

Assist Police Dept. 6 

Assist Fire Dept. 209 

Patients Transported With Advanced Care 323 

Patients Transported With Basic Care 1 33 

Patients Assisted Without Transport 235

REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE COUNCILOR 

It is an honor to report to the people of this large Northern District in my 
capacity as Executive Councilor, one of several elected public servants. The five 
member Council was founded in the NH Constitution and much of NH lav;/ 
provides an additional avenue at the top of your Executive Branch of State 
Government. 

2007 will be a year when members of the Council are charged with conducting 
public hearings on the State of New Hampshire 10-year transportation plan. With 
inflation affecting basic transportation costs, and presently no plan for an increase, 
in the State gasoline tax, I don't look for any new projects becoming a reality. We'll 
be lucky to complete what is currently in the plan. 

I continue to seek volunteers to serve on the 300 or so Boards and 
Commissions as prescribed by New Hampshire law. There are some great 
opportunities to serve your state government! Send your letter of interest and resume 
to my office, or to Kathy Goode, Director of Appointments/Liaison to the Council, 
Governor's Office, State House, 107 North Main Street, Concord, NH 03301. Tel. 
(603) 271-2121 . To find out what openings are available and to see a list of boards, 
visit the NH Secretary of State's website at www.sos.nh.gov/redbook/index.htm. 

The NH web site is very valuable for citizens. If internet is not available to you, 
use your local public or school library to go to www.nh.g ov and find all state 
agencies, general court (representatives) and senate members, mailing addresses, 
and where legislative bills and proposals are. I send my weekly schedule to some 
500 e-mail addresses that include town offices, county officials, district media, NH 
House and Senate members, and others. If you would like to be on that e-mail list 
please send your €-mail address to rburton@nh.g ov. I often include other public 
notices and information. 

It is an honor to continue to serve you now in my 29th and 30th years as a 
public servant. Contact my office anytime about your ideas, concerns and problems 
with state government. I respond to all inquiries and challenges. 

Sincerely Yours, 

Raymond S, Burton 

Executive Councilor

TRI-COUNTY 
COMMUNITY ACTION 



To the SELECTMEN and RESIDENTS of the TOWN of OSSIPEE 

The Tri-County Community Action/Carroll County is a private, non-profit 
agency that was established in 1 965. The Carroll County Resource Center is located 
at 448 White Mountain Highway, Tamworth, NH. 

We have had contact with 3,095 of Ossipee's citizens, processed 289 Fuel 
Applications, 69 elderly, 92 disabled and linked 2,645 with other programs. 

TRI-COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION HAS SPENT $434,515.00 ON OSSIPEE'S 
CITIZENS BETWEEN JULY 1, 2005 AND JUNE 30, 2006. 

Tri-County Community Action is dependent upon funding from your town and 
neighboring communities countywide to provide necessary services for the less 
fortunate citizens in our communities. The local funds are combined with 
Community Services Block Grant, Fuel Assistance, New hiampshire Emergency 
Shelter Grant, Homeless Programs, EFSP, McKinney and private and corporate 
benefactors. We are the conduit through which USDA Surplus Food is distributed to 
the 13 Food Pantries, three dinner bells and a nursing home throughout Carroll 
County in order to serve our residents. 

Carroll County Community Contact has successfully partnered with individuals 
and families to assist them to identify barriers blocking the way to self-sufficiency. 
We have provided information, referrals and assisted with advocacy for more than 
25.156 contacts in Carroll County last year. 

We greatly appreciate the support, cooperation and partnership with your 
elected officials, staff and residents. 

Sincerely, 

Marge M. Webster 

Director of Development

OSSIPEE HISTORICAL SOCIETY 
Annual Report - 2006 

During 2006 we continued to hold our monthly programs in the Courthouse. 
We showcased a wide variety of talent this year including a discussion on growing 
up in Ossipee, featuring Jim Rines, which is always a crowd favorite. Maryjane 
Pettengill presented an unusual program featuring Civil War music and memories. 
Carol Foord entertained us as Abenaki Molly Ockett and told stories of her 
adventures. We were thrilled by a visit from Mary Todd Lincoln (Sally Mummey), 
dressed in period clothing, who told us stories about life as the First Lady. We 
learned about White Mountain art and artists through a slide show presented by art 
historian and collector Charles Vogel. Our September program featured a history of 
the popular Fryeburg Fair, an event many of us attend every year. 

In January, the Ossipee Planning Board began notifying us of pending cases, so 
we can be aware of possible impact on historic properties. 

In May, we completed an exciting project in cooperation with other Carroll 
County Historical Societies. We published a 90-page book highlighting scenic and 
historical sites in each town, including photos, descriptions and directions. The 
book is on sale for $5 at many locations throughout the county. 

We participated in Old FHome Week with a quilt show and a walking tour of 
Center Ossipee, including a visit to the Beech River Mill. Our annual Yard Sale was 
held on July 1 at the Courthouse, and we were blessed with perfect weather. Many 
people enjoyed touring the building, and stayed to shop. We cleared about $800 
from this event. 

During the spring, we moved our portrait collection, library books, and the 
Historical Society files from Grant Hall to the Courthouse. Now that we have a 
heated space, we are spending every Monday afternoon working on cataloging and 
archiving. Both Grant Hall and the Courthouse were kept open during the summer 
on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. by our faithful docents, 
although the numbers of visitors was low this year. 

We are working behind the scenes on our capital campaign to allow us to 
convert the Courthouse into a museum and cultural center for the benefit of the 
entire county. Our goal is to make the Courthouse self-supporting so we can return 
our full attention to our primary mission, which is preserving and protecting the 
history of Ossipee and its people. Much was accomplished in 2006, but of course 
much remains undone. We are counting on the continued support of our dedicated 
members. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Carol Puffer, President

OSSIPEE PLANNING BOARD 
2006 Annual Report 

The Planning Board meets regularly on the first and third Tuesdays of each 
month at 7 PM at the OssipeeTown Hall. Additional work sessions are held on the 
fourth Tuesday of the month as needed to work on changes to the Ossipee Zoning 
Ordinance and other Planning Board business. 

In 2006 the Planning Board approved 10 Subdivisions, 4 Site Plan 
Reviews, 4 Mergers of Lots, and 7 Boundary Line Adjustments. Several of these 
subdivisions were large, so about 70 new lots have been added to the town. 

One Excavation Permit was renewed, and two others recently expired. A 
lot of time was devoted to increasing gravel pit compliance with the Ossipee Earth 
Excavation Regulations and RSA I55E. H.E.Bergeron, an engineering firm, was used 
to determine restoration needed and evaluate restoration plans. In several cases 
legal actions were necessary; some are ongoing. Two pits that have not been in 
compliance for a while should finish up their reclamation process this summer. 

The Ossipee Planning Board recommends that applicants meet with Dave 
Senecal,^ur Zoning Enforcement Officer, before applying to the Planning Board to 
help ensure compliance with all zoning issues. The applicant receives a checklist in 
the application packet to prepare for the hearing. The Planning Board encourages a 
pre-application discussion with the board that can be scheduled for any Planning 
Board meeting following the noticed hearings. 

The new Master Plan was completed and adopted by the Planning Board 
on December 19, 2006. One hundred copies are being prepared with color 
graphics and maps. They are being distributed to all Boards and citizens who would 
like one, as long as they last. Then they will be reproduced on a black and white 
copy machine. All of the Master Plan Chapters are on the town of Ossipee website. 
You should familiarize yourself with the content because it will be the basis of a lot 
of the planning that takes place in Ossipee over the next five years or so. 

We welcome and encourag e any interested people to attend our meetings, 
as input from the townspeople helps determine the direction of the Planning Board. 
The Board has dealt with many difficult issues this year. We are looking for people 
to serve as alternates. It is a really good way to learn about the work of the Planning 
Board in your town and make your voice heard in the community. There has been 
much more communication with the Conservation Commission this year, which is 
to everybody's benefit. 

Once again we geared up to confront the issue of multi-family housing in 
the Zoning Ordinance. The actual wording is not very different from that which 
failed for the last two years. This time we did a much better job of convincing the 



59 



public to vote for the amendment at a Special Town meeting held January 16. The 
Carroll County newspaper did a great job of informing the voters and the 
amendment passed. 

The Planning Board has spent many hours increasing consistency and 
making some changes in documents, i.e. the Subdivision Regulations, the Zoning 
Ordinance, and the Master Plan. Much attention has been given to improving and 
elaborating on the present Site Plan Review Regulations. The initial draft was 
prepared by a subcommittee that studied regulations from nearby towns and 
presented what they believe is most appropriate for Ossipee to the whole board. 
When that is completed, we hope to take the next step and learn about a Capital 
Improvement Program. Please vote for that article at town meeting to help Ossipee 
plan for capital expenditures in a logical systematic way. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ralph Buchanan Planning Board Chairman

ZONING ENFORCEMENT OFFICER 

This year was again busy. Permits were issued for all types of construction. 
New homes were down from last year, but permits were about the same number. A 
change in permit fees has increased revenue to the general fund to offset expenses. 

As a member of the NH Building Officials Association, I go to meetings 
once a month in Concord. This keeps me up to date on changing requirements. I 
also attend the Planning Board and Zoning Board meetings. Both boards have been 
very active. 

I am available Monday through Friday, Sam to 4:30pm at the Town Hall. 

Permits Issued in 2006 
Building: 175 
Sign: 12 
Plumbing: 28 
Electric: 50 
Occupancy: 53 
New Homes: 29

OSSIPEE ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT 
ANNUAL REPORT 2006 

Jean Marie Simpson was elected Chairman of the Ossipee Zoning Board 
with Stanley Brothers as Vice Chairman. Other members of the board are David 
Babson, Lisa Hinckley and Ann Johnson. Bruce Boutin and Mark McConkey are the 
alternates. 

Public hearings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM. 
At the meetings, thirteen Variances were granted. Many of these were applications 
to make changes in homes that do not meet the setbacks from the property lines 
according to the present Zoning Ordinance. Eight Special Exceptions were granted: 
one was to add another carrier to an existing telecommunications tower, and seven 
were to replace a building with a less nonconforming one. Two cases were denied. 

If the applicant is denied a building permit because of the need for a 
Variance or a Special Exception, Dave Senecal, the Zoning Enforcement Officer, 
issues a denial and instructs them to apply to the Ossipee Zoning Board. He attends 
all of the Zoning Board meetings. He makes sure that all the conditions placed on 
a decision by the ZBA are satisfied before he grants a building permit. Four cases 
were referred to the ZEO for his inspection and follow-up. The Zoning Board of 
Adjustment has worked closely with the Zoning Enforcement Officer to ensure that 
possible violations of the conditions of a decision are reviewed. 

Prior to the ZBA hearing the case, a fee must be paid for public notification 
and certified mailing to all abutters, as well as a hearing fee of $75.00. The secretary 
compiles the information and sends it to the Board members before the hearing. 
Board members often make a visit to the site, so they will have a better 
understanding of the case. An official procedure is followed for conducting the case. 
At the conclusion of the case, the ZBA members do a role call vote. The results are 
publicized in a public notice as to whether the application was granted or denied. 
Any conditions of approval or reasons for denial are included. The applicant must 
wait 30 days, so that anyone dissatisfied with the decision has a chance to go 
through the appeal process. 

Applicants would hasten the process by being sure they have included all 
the information requested in the application packet. The ZBA adopted a checklist for 
the applicant that must be completed before submitting the application, and signed 
by the ZEO or the secretary indicating that it is complete. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Jean Marie Simpson

LAKES RECrON PLANNING COMMISSION 

The Lakes Region has changed tremendously in the past 25 years. Homes and 
businesses have expanded along major roadways, and many of our communities 
have experienced dramatic changes. This growth has resulted in a number of 
regional challenges. The Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) is the area 
organization established to address the effects of growth at both the local and 
regional level. With a service area covering over 1,200 square miles in Belknap, 
Carroll, Grafton and Merrimack Counties, the LRPC provides a wide range of 
planning services to member municipalities. The Commission offers direct and 
support services ranging from technical assistance, geographic information systems, 
and transportation planning, to land use and environmental planning, and 
economic development. Local, state, and federal resources primarily fund the LRPC. 
We are contacted several times daily for answers to local and statewide issues. We 
also maintain a regular dialogue with state agencies as a resource for the entire 
Lakes Region. Our goal remains to provide support and leadership to the 
governments, businesses, and citizens of the Lakes Region. 

Listed below are some of the services performed on behalf of Ossipee and the 
region in the past fiscal year: 

• Discussed the potential outcome of allowing multi-family residential development 
in established commercial nodes. 

• Prepared a CIS parcel map of the town upon request of local official. 

• Reviewed a proposed site plan revision. 

• Provided information on light pollution to a member of the conservation 
commission. 

• Provided local official with an electronic copy of Ossipee's subdivision map. 

• Provided information on the annual household hazardous waste collection. 

• Submitted an example of a permanent steep slope ordinance with a sunset clause. 

• Provided information on the difference between impact fees and off-site 
excavations. 

• Provided information on the process to obtain local traffic counts. 

• Continue to use Ossipee as a host site for the annual Lakes Region Household 
Hazardous Waste Collection. 

• Prepared a preliminary report on Housing and School Enrollments in the Lakes 
Region with a final report due in the fall of 2006. Funding was provided in part 
by grants obtained by LRPC. 

• Initiated a Virtual Agriculture Tour of the region: a pilot project designed to 
illustrate how the Internet and CIS can be used to identify and bolster agricultural 
activity. 

• Completed and distributed the 2006 Development Activity in the Lakes Region 
report on the Lakes Region development trends. Prepared and distributed a 
development survey for 2006-2007. 

• Planned and coordinated the 20th annual household hazardous waste collection 
in the Lakes Region. Two consecutive Saturdays were designated as collection 
days for 24 participating communities. An estimated 20,000 total gallons of waste 
were collected, containerized, and transported to EPA approved end-of-life 
locations around the country. 

• Convened several meetings of the LRPC Transportation Technical Advisory 
Committee (TAC) to enhance local involvement in transportation planning and 
project development. The TAC advises the LRPC on transportation projects of 
regional significance. 



63 



Co-hosted and organized three public Municipal Law Lectures where practicing 

attorneys provide a legal perspective on local planning, zoning and other 

municipal issues. Recent lectures included: OffSite Extractions and Impact Fees; 

Balancing Municipal Interests and Private Property Rights; Ethics for Land Use 

Board Members; and Land Use Regulations: Constitutional Challenges and the 

Evolving Law of Variances. Also convened a regional meeting on the use of 

conservation subdivisions as an effective land use conservation tool. 

Secured funding from the NH Emergency Management Bureau to assist local 

communities with the preparation of all hazard management plans. 

Prepared a model steep slopes ordinance and a draft agricultural land 

preservation ordinance. Both are to be included in an innovative zoning 

guidebook to be released by the NH Department of Environmental Services 

in 2007. 

Awarded $50,000 from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to 

prepare a Comprehensive Economic Development Plan (CEDS). LRPC will bring 

various stakeholders together to develop a regional vision and plan for regional 

economic progress. A completed CEDS will also provide communities with 

improved access to EDA funding for infrastructure and economic development 

projects, a benefit not currently available. 

Adopted the Lakes Region Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan; a planning effort that will 

help provide a blueprint for the location of regional and local bike and pedestrian 

routes. 

Conducted over 150 traffic counts around the region, in cooperation with the 

New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT). LRPC is also preparing and 

updating local road inventories, on a town-by-town basis, that will be used by the 

DOT. 

Participated on the Lakes Region Household Hazardous Product Facility board of 

directors to explore the ways and means that the facility may encourage 

communities to participate as members. 

Convened seven Commission meetings, including four area meetings, which 

featured a diverse range of topics ranging from a presentation focusing on how 

scenic views affect local property assessments, an update of LRPC's Regional 

Goals and Objectives which was accomplished with discussions and 

recommendations over the four area meetings and adoption in September of this 

year, an amendment to the Standing Rules and Procedures for the LRPC 

Transportation Advisory Committee, and an update on the recent achievements of 

the Northern Rail Trail in Merrimack County. 

Continue to represent the region on several boards and committees related to the 

economic and environmental well-being of the region, e.g., the Belknap County 

Economic Development Council, the Grafton County Economic Development 

Council, the Pemigewasset River Local Advisory Committee, the North Country 

Resource and Conservation Development Council, etc. 

Reviewed project proposals through the NH Intergovernmental Review 

Agreement that provides the region and local communities an opportunity to 

respond to applications seeking state and federal aid. LRPC reviewed many 

proposals having a combined investment total greater than $15 million in the 

Lakes Region. 

Produced a calendar of critical deadlines for March Town Meeting, and 

distributed it via our web site and regular mail. 

Ordered and distributed many copies of the NH Planning and Land Use 

Regulation books to member planning boards at considerable savings. Copies are 

provided to individual planning board members.

OSSIPEE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 
Annual Report for 2006 

The Conservation Commission meets on the second Wednesday of the 
month at 7:00PM in the Ossipee Town Hall. The public is always encouraged and 
welcome to attend. Warren Walker was re-elected as Chairman, and Elizabeth 
Gillette was elected Vice Chairman. Other members are Ralph Buchanan, Andy 
Northrop, Jean Hansen, Mark Ciarfella, and Bob Pratt. 

The educational program for the public presented by Dr. Doug Little was 
all about wild turkeys whose numbers have increased dramatically in NH in recent 
years. The Ossipee Conservation Commission sponsors an educational speaker 
series annually based on a natural resource topic. 

The Commission continued to co-partner with the Green Mountain 
Conservation Group to participate in the Water Sampling program at Frenchman's 
Brook and the Beech River. The Ossipee Conservation Commission put $2000 in 
their budget toward the cost of the water testing. Several Commission members 
participated in the water testing. 

The Ossipee Conservation Commission continues to uphold its mission by 
providing an initiative to protect, preserve and manage the magnificent natural 
resource base of Ossipee. Several pieces of property were considered for purchase 
as conservation land. A subcommittee was formed to acquire the 19th Hole 
property on Route 16, once the Selectmen gave permission to go ahead. The 
Selectmen stipulated that taxpayer money could not be used. The project was titled 
"Window on the Ossipees", because of the spectacular view of Mt. Shaw. The 
property is important to conserve for a number of reasons in addition to the view. It 
will increase the size of conserved land along that stretch of Route 16, which is 
important for wildlife. The Conservation Commission also has plans for a scenic 
pullover with trails and an information kiosk. If you would like to make a pledge to 
help with this project, please call or send the information to the secretary or any 
member. The subcommittee has been working very hard to submit applications for 
a Federal TCSP grant and an LCHIP grant. 

Steps are being taken to implement the Forestry Plan for the Ossipee 
Conservation land prepared by B.H. Keith, Assoc. 291 acres of conservation land 
have been certified as a tree farm. 

The Ossipee Conservation Commission gave $5,000 of conservation 
money to the Ossipee Park Project for use in creating the green space of the park in 
Center Ossipee. 

Ossipee took part in the Lake Host Program to check boats going into 
Ossipee Lake for milfoil. Jean Hansen and Mark Ciarfella attended training. Mark 
was the point person who supervised the young people checking the boats. The 
program was a great success. 

The Conservation Commission worked closely with the Planning Board 
giving input on conservation issues, such as viewsheds and dark skies, for inclusion 
in the Master Plan and the Site Plan Review Regulations.

Warren Walker, Chairman

OSSIPEE OLD HOME WEEK COMMITTEE 
2006 ANNUAL REPORT 

The 2006 Ossipee Old Home Week was once again a great success! 

The nine day celebration began on June 30 and included the biggest and 
best fireworks display in Carroll County (and maybe New Hampshire) on July 4th at 

, Constitution Park. 44 events were on the schedule! All of the events were well 

I attended and enjoyed by all. The Committee thanks the VFW Post 8270 & Ladies 
Auxiliary and Ossipee Concerned Citizens for their help and support for the Week, 
particularly on July 4th. We would also like to express our thanks for all who 

I participated in planning an event during the week. The Committee works extremely 

I hard putting everything together. 

Non profit organizations, civic groups, individuals, neighborhoods, and 
'the town departments all worked together to make the 2006 Old Home Week the 
success it was. The community spirit is alive and well in Ossipee! We all should be 
\ proud of what we have with the Old Home Week. There are not many communities 
ithat pull together for an event like this. 
1 

As always, there are no tax dollars used to pay for any of the events during 
^Old Home Week. All of the money comes through donations and sponsorships. 
I Expenses for 2006 were in the neighborhood of $19,000. Even with increasing 
i expenses, we continue to meet our goals and stand by our pledge that we made to 
\ not seek or accept tax money to operate. The Old Home Week Committee is an all 
[Volunteer group that meets year round to plan for the Week. There is a continued 
i need for new members. Please attend one of the meetings or see a current 
J Committee member if you are interested in assisting. The Committee meets on 
! Tuesday evenings at the Public Library and your input is welcome. 



In addition to annual Old Home Week, the Committee plans other events 
during the year. These include: Decorating the Town Hall for the Holidays (over 
5,000 lights this year); Easter Egg Hunt; and Mother's and Father's Day gifts for the 
residents of the Mountain View Nursing home and Sunset Place. 

Plans are already well underway for the 2007 Old Home Week with dates 
being June 30-July 8. Mark your calendars now and look for the events coming your 
way! The Committee remains dedicated to promoting community pride through the 
Old Home Week and in celebrating the 4th of July in style and the celebrations 
leading up to, and following, the 4th. 

As chairpersons of the 2006 Ossipee Old Home Week, we would like to 
thank all of the Committee members for their hard work and all of the members of 
the community who have been so very supportive.

businesses, civic groups, church groups, or others to "adopt" a park in town. We are 
looking for you to assist us with monitoring the town's parks and ballfield areas. 
There are a number of ways that you can assist with this. How can you help? Here 
are a few examples: By notifying us if something is wrong or if a particular area is 
being misused; assist with trash clean up, and by helping to make the area look nice 
with flowers etc. Anyone who participates in this program will receive special 
recognition. For more information please either contact the Recreation Department 
or a member of the Conservation Commission. 

Do you have a lot of ink or laser jet cartridges to get rid of? Let us take care 
of that for you! We will take them and give them to a company in Fremont, NH. 
They give us $1 .50 for each cartridge. So not only are you properly disposing of your 
cartridges, you are also helping out the Department! 

Our goal for the Department is to: "Offer a wide range of activities for all 
ages designed to meet the needs of the community, and to encourage healthy use of 
your leisure and recreation time." It does not matter what your age, there is always 
something for you to do. If you have an idea for a new program or activity, please 
call us at 539-1307 and we can discuss your idea and possibly include it into our 
schedule of programs and events. Many of the programs and events you see listed 
here are the result of a conversation that we have had with someone who had an 
idea for a new program. We are working hard to provide the best continuing and 
new programs we can for this community. Following is a brief description of 2 
programs coming up for the year 2007: 

We are excited to announce that we applied for, and received, 2 new grant 
funded programs which will be implemented in 2007. (They are listed on the Town 
Warrant this year). 

The first is called "Walk With Me!". This grant was awarded through the 
Healthy New Hampshire (HNH) Foundation. We will provide pedometers to 
families with children age 8 and younger along with a guide to encourage families 
to get out and walk! We will also work with the Walk NH Program out of the 



70 



Governor's Office and will have a Walk Across NH Contest v^ith prizes! 

The second is called "Summer Programs at Ossipee Recreation for Teens" 
(S.P.O.R.T.). This grant was awarded through the Carroll County Prevention Program 
Development Funds. This program will provide a 6 week summer program for ages 
1 2-1 6 in the summer of 2007, 

There was a renewed interest this year in the possible creation of a 
Skatepark in Town for youth. In November, a public Forum was held with over 30 
in attendance, half of them youth. Since then a Skatepark Committee has been 
formed with 18 dedicated people with a good mix of adults and youth. They have 
been meeting regularly and have put a proposal together. The Committee has been 
working closely with the Recreation Department and the Main Street Program. 
There is a Warrant Article asking for support to start this project on the 2007 Town 
Warrant. 

The Town is responsible for the following Recreation Areas and Facilities: 
Swimming Area: Cleveland Beach (Town Beach on Duncan Lake), Boat Landing s: 
on Pequawket Trail, on Harpers Ferry Landing, on Ossipee Lake Drive, Nichols 
Road, Whittier Bridge Area, and White Pond, Parks, Ballfields, Hiking Trails & Tennis 
Courts: Constitution Park, Ballfields & Basketball Court: YMCA Field, Park: Mill 
Pond, Bearcamp Recreation Area (on Newman Drew Road), Other: Outdoor Ice 
Rink, Indoor Facilities: Town Hall Gym. 

The development and maintenance of Town recreation facilities is jointly 
monitored by myself, Dave Senecal (Zoning Enforcement Officer), and Brad 
Harriman (Public Work's Director), and the Board of Selectmen. 

This past year, work on the maintenance and development of the Town's 
Recreation Facilities continued with the following projects that were completed in

obtain all information about the Department including: upcoming events, program 
registration forms, surveys, opinion polls, and more! You can also link to the other 
Town sites. 

Weekly updates in the local newspapers and occasional announcements 
on Channel 3 on Cable TV are sent out to keep you up-to-date on what is happening 
with the department. In addition, the Program Brochure is published on a quarterly 
basis (Spring: March - May, Summer: June - August, Fall: September - November, 
and Winter: December - February) that serves as a handy resource for you to inquire 
about what is available through the department. 1300 - 1800 are produced each 
Quarter to keep you informed! The size and content of the brochure continues to 
expand as more programs and activities are added. We continue to participate in 
the NRPA (National Parks & Recreation Association) Program Brochure Exchange 
Program. Ossipee's brochure is sent out to over 600 recreation departments around 
the country, Canada, and Guam. In return, they send their brochures to us. It is a 
wonderful way to network and share ideas. 

The Ossipee Recreaction Department continues to maintain its 
membership with the following organizations: 

• New Hampshire Recreation & Parks Association (NHRPA) 
•Carroll County Recreation Director's Association (CCRDA) 

• New FHampshire Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation 
and Dance (NHAHPERD) 

•National Parks & Recreation Association (NRPA) 
•National Arbor Day Foundation

Membership in these organizations provides valuable resources and input 
on a local, state, regional, and national level. The department is also actively 
involved in the organization of the Ossipee Old Home Week, the Ossipee Central 
School's "School's Out" After School Program, The Ossipee Main Street Program, 
Carroll County Juvenile Justice Project, and other local activities and events. 

I currently serve on the Social, Awards, and Program Committees for New 
Hampshire Recreation & Parks Association (NHRPA). I am a Deputy Fire Chief/EMT- 
-B/Fire Inspector for the Center Ossipee Fire & Rescue Department and I am also a 
member of: Ossipee Old Home Week Committee, Ossipee Main Street Executive 
Board, Ossipee Central School "School's Out" Advisory Board, and the Carroll 
County Juvenile Justice Project Planning Board, as well as an Instructor for the 
American Red Cross. Jason is also a member of NRPA, NHRPA, and the "School's 
Out" Advisory Board. He is also a certified instructor for the Coach Smart NH youth 
coaches curriculum. We both participate in several local and regional conferences 
throughout the year with other Park & Recreation Professionals. Our participation in 
these conferences helps us gain further knowledge of leading edge programming 
which then enables us to give you the best opportunities we can for recreation in 
Ossipee. 

Even though we now have 2 full-time staff, we still rely almost 100% on 
volunteers to make things happen here. A special THANK YOU! is extended to all 
coaches, referees, umpires, instructors, summer camp and lifeguard staff, and 
volunteers who generously share their time and expertise with all of the residents of 
Ossipee, young and old. This community has a great community and volunteer 
spirit. 

This volunteer effort greatly enhances the quality of the activities and 
programs. Without your help, guidance, and support, the department could not 
accomplish what it does. We want to also show our deep appreciation to all of the 
businesses, civic groups, non-profit groups, individuals, the staff at the Ossipee 
Central and Effingham Schools, and the other Town of Ossipee Departments for their 
support of the Recreation Department. Through your financial contributions and 
your individual efforts, many residents of the town (young and old) have been able 
to participate in department activities. Thanks also to: Peter OIkkola and Laurence 
Brownell for keeping the ball fields and the Mill Pond Park looking sharp, to Todd 
and Chris Nason for setting up the Town Hall for the variety of activities; to Fred 
Loud and the Highway Department for keeping the Ice Rink free of snow; to Jordan 
O'Neill and his parents for keeping the Ice Rink in excellent skating condition this 
season (despite the warm weather!), (Thanks as well to Thomas Sheffer & his parents 
for their years of keeping the Rink clear); and to Ken and the Water Department for 
their assistance in keeping the water flowing to keep the Ice Rink flooded. Thanks 
also to Sam Martin for all her hard work on the brochure. Special thanks to my 
mother, Virginia Waugh, who folds all of my brochures! 



73 



Remember, Recreation is more than just sports! Recreation is what you do 
in your leisure time! What will you and your family do this year to recreate? Try 
something new and see the impact that it has for the good of you and your family. 
The programs the Department offers are not just for young people. The Department 
is here to serve all the residents of Ossipee. The Department office is located next 
to the Town Hall on Main Street, Center Ossipee. 

For a small town, we have a lot to offer. On behalf of Jason and I - it is a 
joy to serve as your Recreation Directors. 

Enjoy Life Recreate! The Benefits are Endless!

OSSIPEE CONCERNED CITIZENS, INC. 

Annual Report for the year 2006 

To the Selectmen and Citizens of the Town of Ossipee, Ossipee Concerned 
Citizens, Inc. submits its Annual Report for the year 2006: 

Thirty-two years ago Ossipee Concerned Citizens, Inc. was conceived. 
"OCC is a nonprofit multi-purpose human services agency whose mission statement 
continues to be "to promote the growth and prosperity of the Town of Ossipee." A 
variety of primary programs have been introduced during those years to that end. As 
a whole, they address health and wellness through nutrition, nutrition education, 
safety, Early Childhood Education, enjoyment of participation, accessibility, 
sociability, and economic feasibility. 

The Elderly Nutrition Program (congregate meals and meals-on- wheels) in 
Center Ossipee and Moultonboro, with satellite sites in Tamworth and Sandwich 
combined to prepare and deliver over seventy-two thousand (72,000) meals to 
seniors 60 years and older from January to December of 2006. Scores of volunteer 
meals drivers deliver hot meals on specific routes in Ossipee, Tamworth, Freedom, 
Effingham, Moultonboro. and Sandwich. Recent statistics reflect that seniors are 
living logger. 

Recent statistics reveal that seniors are living longer and healthier lives. 
Within the OCC Elderly Nutrition Home-Delivered Title III Program alone, sixty-four 
percent of our clients are seventy-five years or older, while nearly thirteen percent 
are ninety years and older. In addition, the senior population (60-I-) is increasing 
nationally, and is reflected here in New Hampshire. 

The Carroll County WIC (Women, Infants and Children Nutrition/ 
Education) Program for twenty-seven years has provided nutrition and breastfeeding 
education and counseling, and food vouchers to eligible clients within the county. 
Voucher and certification clinics are held at seven sites within that area. Further, the 
Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) continues to provide boxes of non- 
perishable foods and blocks of cheese to many WIC clients, and seniors who are 
sixty and older. Boxes are distributed at clinics in Ossipee and Conway. Others are 
delivered directly to seniors in Ossipee and adjacent townships. 

The Ossipee Crossings Child Care Center after fifteen years continues to 
provide working families with day care in a central location. An experienced staff 
of teachers are on duty to provide safe and enjoyable day care for children from 
three to twelve years of age. The center is open on Monday through Friday of each 
week from 6:30 am to 5:30 pm. Additionally, licensed Early Childhood Education 
classes are held for three and four year old boys and girls as preparation for future 
grade levels. 



17 



The Ossipee Senior Center is certified by the New Hampshire Association 
of Senior Centers. With the nutrition program as a basic connection, a variety of 
senior activities are offered to promote physical and emotional health and wellness 
through enjoyment of participation and socialization. Also, programs with a direct 
health benefit are included. 

The following is a list of the above activities which are sponsored solely 
by OCC or in collaboration with other organizations and volunteers: Monthly 
blood-pressure clinics in association with Wolfeboro VNA, monthly footcare clinics 
with Lakes Region General Hospital, monthly hearing testing with Dr. Ed Burns, 
Annual Flu Shot Clinic with Wolfeboro VNA, Senior Game Day with Ossipee 
Recreation Department, Monday Night Whist at OCC, Monday Afternoon Bingo at 
OCC, senior shopping trips, birdwatching, social event trips, and a variety of day 
trips (incl. Portland Flower Show with ORD). 

Along with the above health and wellness events are programs designated 
as fundraisers with an entertainment value. They are: Annual Spring Fling, Fourth of 
July Celebration, Annual Harvest Fair, public turkey suppers, penny sales, limited 
catering, and the OCC Uptown Boutique. 

Ossipee Concerned Citizens, Inc. has an annual budget of $825,000.00. 
Contracts with several funding sources allow OCC to provide the services identified 
above. Those include the following: the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, the 
United States Department of Agriculture, the Division of Public Health Services, and 
Childcare Development Fund, Lakes Region United Way, and the Bald Peak 
Association Fund administered by NH Charitables. Funding from town support, 
donations, and fundraising complete budget receivables. 

The OCC Christmas Fair and Santa Project assisted one-hundred-seventy 
(170) families with four hundred and twelve (412) boys and girls. Its enormous 
success is due solely to the wide-ranging support of organizations and individuals 
who partnership for a common, spiritual goal. 

Many OCC Annual Reports have been written over the years. Two 
important themes are consistent with each. The unselfish support of volunteers, and 
the dedication of staff. Working together throughout the years has allowed OCC to 
make a difference in the quality of life for the residents of town. With the consistent 
support of the Board of Selectmen, department heads, town office staff, and citizens 
of the community, OCC has and will continue to provide quality services to 
residents of all ages within the Town of Ossipee. Thank you all! 

Respectfully submitted.

Executive Director, OCC

OSSIPEE WATER AND SEWER COMMISSION 

The Ossipee Water and Sewer Department under the auspice of the Ossipee 
Water and Sewer Commission has continued to make upgrades to both the Water 
System and the Center Ossipee Sewer System during the year of 2006. 
"Camp David" 

We have successively received a permit from the Department of Environmental 
Services to install two additional lagoons for the use of those residents within the 
Town of Ossipee who maintain private sewage disposal systems (tanks and leach 
beds). Our "Camp David" facility is restricted to the use of the residence of Ossipee 
by Town Ordinance. This ordinance is strictly enforced, however, the population 
and new construction has drastically increased requiring the installation of these 
two additional lagoons. The construction of the lagoons is scheduled to start April 
1, 2007. 

Two new leach beds are in the process of being designed by Wright Pierce (our 
engineers) for installation in the year of 2008. The pending two additional fields will 
increase the current leach bed fields from 22 to 24 individual beds. The leach bed 
fields are used by those residents and apartment buildings being serviced by the 
Center Ossipee Sewer System. A rate increase will not be required to accomplish 
this. 
Water System 

The water system servicing the Center Ossipee Area has had a trouble free year 
with very few water breaks. This is good news in that it does cut the number of "Call 
Outs" on overtime. 

The long awaited main line replacement on Route 16 is scheduled to 
commence construction on or about April 1st, with weather conditions permitting. 
The main line on Route 1 6 is located on the East side of the highway. All efforts are 
being made to not hinder the flow of traffic and to minimize the impact on the 
businesses in the area. It is anticipated, barring any unforeseen issues, that the 
replacement should not take longer, give or take, a three week period. 

The next line improvements now on the drawing board are Route 1 6B and 
Patty's Acres. We are looking to the years of either 2008 or 2009 to schedule these 
replacements. 

At this point in time, we the Commissioners want to extend our sincere 
appreciation and thanks to the various Town Departments for their continued help 
and support throughout the year of 2006. The Board of Selectmen, Martha Eldridge 
(Town Administrator); Barbara Adams and her staff Trish and Tracy (Tax Office), 
Belinda Cullen and her Budget Committee, Gail Gliesman (payroll); Kellie Skehan 
(Treasurer); not to mention the Highway Department for without their strong 
assistance we would not be able to operate. Our hats off to each and every one of 
them. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Commissioners

OSSIPEE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 
ANNUAL REPORT FOR 2006 

The year of 2006 saw some changes in the Highway Department. Danny 
Riley has been out since the middle of August due to illness. Best wishes to Danny 
and his family. Also, I was hired in mid October as the Public Works Director. 

Since I have been here, the Highway crew has worked diligently to get the 
many miles of dirt roads that are in Ossipee in shape before winter sets in. The heavy 
rains this fall caused many of our culverts to plug up with leaves, which in turn 
caused some washouts on our roads. The crew did a nice job, spending endless 
hours during storms, in keeping the roads and culverts open. We are now evaluating 
the roads and drainage for future repairs and improvements. 

The Valley Road Bridge replacement was postponed to April of 2007 due 
to the fact that the manufacturer of the bridge got tied down with emergencies from 
other towns due to the fall flooding. 

The crews at both the Highway Department and the Solid Waste Facility 
have been very supportive, teaching me what they are accomplishing in a daily 
routine, and what issues they are facing in the future. 

I am looking forward to the challenges of the upcoming year, and serving 
the Town of Ossipee. 

Respectfully submitted , 

Brad Harriman 

Public Works Director

to be committed to the safety and success of our community as well as planning and 
preparing for the future needs of our community. We encourage the public to be a

FOREST FIREWARDEN'S 
ANNUAL REPORT - 2006 

The 2006 Forest Fire Season started out early in mid March due to the lack 
of snow last winter and actually lasted through December because we couldn't 
keep snow cover. March through May was relatively dry and proved busy with 
numerous fires, however, June through December was very rainy resulting in fewer 
fires. However, because of the wet fall and lack of snow, more permits were issued 
than normal for that time of year. The season was not only long due to the lack of 
snow cover, but this year the State Laws were changed resulting in reeducating not 
only the Deputy Wardens, but also the entire public. Brochures were given out 
when permits were issued explaining the changes, and there are also brochures at 
the Town Hall. Further information on the new laws can be found through the 
Department of Resources and Economic Development, Division of Forest and Lands 
at www.nhdfl.org . 

There were over 800 permits issued in the Town during 2006. This is 
approximately the same number as last year. With the new laws it was thought that 
fewer permits would be issued this year because there is no longer a permit for 
cooking and a permit for a camp fire, but only one permit issued depending on the 
size of the fire. However, because of the wet lengthy year more brush permits were 
issued keeping the overall permit total over 800. Please remember that if the ground 
is not completely covered with snow at least within a 100 foot radius around any 
brush pile to be burned, then a fire permit is needed. When in question call and ask. 
If you wish to burn without snow cover, please call the Fire Department in your 
Precinct. The Department numbers are listed below. Please only leave a message at 
one Department. These calls are returned by call fire/rescue personnel that are 
answering emergency calls on a daily basis, so it is recommended to call at least 
one day before the day that you wish to burn so there is adequate time for your call 
to be returned and for someone to issue the permit.

OSSIPEE CORNER FIRE DEPARTMENT 
ANNUAL REPORT - 2006 

In closing yet another busy year, the Members of the Department 
responded to 312 Emergency Calls in 2006, five more than last year. The Members 
attended 50 Department Trainings and/or Meetings. The Department attended a 
National Incident Management System Class and has also incorporated a formal 
accountability system. Both will aid greatly in the event that there is a large scale 
incident. The Department Roster currently stands at thirteen. 

As stated in last year's report, the Precinct has been looking for a piece of 
land that would be adequate to house a new Fire Station and to meet the needs for 
the Precinct both now and into the future. After an extensive search another piece 
of land has been located that is felt will meet the needs. The vote for this piece of 
land will be at the next Precinct Meeting. 

The Department's "Detect For Life" smoke alarm campaign is still on going 
from last year. The Department received 1,800 smoke alarms and extra batteries 
from a grant to distribute. At this time we are able to give these to Any Town 
Resident. To date we still have several hundred left to give out. If you are a resident 
of the Town and need or question if you need new smoke alarms or batteries, or if 
you are not sure that you have enough smoke alarms, please call the fire department 
at 539-2407. These detectors are not doing any good sitting in boxes at the station, 
so please call. Smoke alarms save lives! 

DEPARTMENT STATISTICS: 

Total calls: 312 

Total man-hours for calls, trainings and department meetings: 3,341 

Administrative hours (inspections, meetings, department operations): 2,002 

YEARLY CALL TOTALS:

The Department received Mutual Aid from other Departments: 6 



86 



There were 15 Oil Burner and Woodstove Permits issued. There were a 
total of 46 Town Building Applications issued in this Precinct, of these, 1 5 were for 
new single family homes, 6 were for a residential addition, 1 6 were for a residential 
out building, 6 were for a residential remodel, 2 were for a commercial remodel, 
and 1 was for a pool. 

I would like to thank the Members of the Ossipee Corner Fire Department 
for their continuous commitment, unselfish acts, and family sacrifices that they 
make, when ever duty calls, to make the Community a safer place to live. Thank you 
to the Precinct Commissioners and people of the community for your support of the 
Department.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

One year ago, the Governor Wentworth Regional School District changed 
its vision by adopting the following phrase designed to focus the efforts of the 
School Board and the staff: Helping Each Child Create the Future. This little phrase 
stands in direct conflict with the historic perspective of having the duty to educate 
all children. The creation of this profound statement, however, was the easy part of 
our work. The true challenge for the District is implementing this philosophy into 
every aspect of our daily interactions with or about children... bringing the vision to 
life. 



88 



An important step in this process is the development of Professional 
learning Communities in all of our schools. The hallmark of a professional learning 
community resides in the understanding that every school district employee is 
responsible for the success of each child, not just those with whom they have the 
greatest amount of contact. The notion of collegiality among staff is nice, but it is far 
rVom being sufficient to meet the requirements of a true professional learning 
community. It takes collaboration, accountability and a commitment to the success 
of each child in order to achieve the desired status. The Governor Wentworth 
Education Association, through its collective bargaining agreement, has strongly 
supported the growth of professional learning communities. 

The Ossipee Central School, through its work with the HOPE Institute, was 
the first school to adopt the practices associated with professional learning 
communities. I am pleased to report that the school has been recognized by the 
federal government for the exceptional progress it has made in fostering 
improvement in student achievement. The success was no accident. The school has 
excellent leadership in the school's two administrators and a very competent staff 
who have committed themselves to help each child succeed. Their collective 
abilities and tireless efforts are making a difference for the children living in 
Ossipee. 

Space needs continues to be an issue that needs a solution. The second 
phase of the 20-year plan, the building of two intermediate schools, was not 
approved by the voters. The School Board has great respect for the wisdom of the 
voters and therefore, will seek to find another solution that better aligns with the 
aspirations of the district's stake holders. While they had hoped to have a plan which 
could be placed on the March 2007 Warrant, they have not yet found a solution that 
is likely to be acceptable to a majority of the voters. While they have identified some 
land which would be appropriate for a high school or an intermediate school, a 
request for a bond to construct a new building will not be placed on the Warrant 
until at least 2008. With the matter of the withdrawal of a cooperative town now 
resolved, the District can move forward as a unified entity to meet the space needs 
for all pupils. 

Throughout ones career, it is a pleasure to have the opportunity to get to 
know so many fine people. I have had the good fortune to work with a couple of 
people who have given most of their adult lives to the Governor Wentworth 
Regional School District, but now have decided to retire. Sumner Harris has long 
been a strong advocate for children and has truly helped so many children create 
their futures. Grace Douglas has been the heart, soul and historian for the SAU 
Office. She has kept us out of paper-work purgatory with all branches of government 
for as long as anyone can remember. I want to thank them Grace and Sumner for 
their tireless efforts as well as their loyalty to the District. I will miss both of them 
and hope their respective retirements are filled with health and happiness. They 
both have earned it! 

Respectfully submitted, 
John B. Robertson
